May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month

The brain is the center of thought, memory, emotion, speech, sensation and motor function. The spinal cord and special nerves called cranial nerves carry and receive messages between the brain and the rest of the body. Brain tumors cause damage because, as they grow, they can interfere with surrounding cells that serve vital roles in our everyday life.
Learn how radiation therapy is used to treat brain tumors.

IMMUNOTHERAPY
Immunotherapy is a type of drug or medication that can block the signals that cancer cells use to “hide” from our immune system. Blocking these signals allows the immune system to fight cancer in a very different way than other treatments like chemotherapy or radiation therapy, which directly damage cancer cells.
SURVIVOR CIRCLE
ASTRO established the Survivor Circle to honor cancer survivors and support groups during our Annual Meeting. The application period for both the Survivor Circle Award and Survivor Circle Grant are now open.
